Why do kitties sneeze?

Do cats cry?

 The crying condition as such does not exist in felines. There is a pathological leakage of tears outside the eyes (or, more precisely, the eyelids). Then an ophthalmologist or dermatologist should be consulted. And only in a group of breeds may be the norm if other pathologies are excluded. Then they need additional hygiene.

Why do cats need whiskers?
